Marylou Speaker Churchill
Marylou Speaker Churchill inspired generations of musicians and
music students with the passion and clarity of her musical vision.

Marylou was a hugely influential teacher and generous mentor,
serving on the collegiate and preparatory school faculties at New
England Conservatory and many other music education institutions.
Writing in the Boston Globe, Richard Dyer described her as: “a radiant

interactive chamber-music player, and both of these qualities played
into her role in the orchestra; she was a team player who elevated the
